If there is any animal that can be truly awe inspiring in the mountains of New Zealand, it is the Himalayan tahr (Hemitragus jemlahicus). To see a bull tahr traversing precipitous rock or snow at speed is the sight of a life time. The first animals arrived here by ship via an English game park (Woburn Abbey) and they have thrived ever since, albeit within a restricted range.
The tahr is considered vulnerable by the IUCN (1996) in its Himalayan home. New Zealand is the only place in the world where this magnificent animal can be freely hunted although there are populations of tahr in South Africa, New Mexico, California, and Ontario.
Tahr inhabit the main mountain ranges of the South Island of New Zealand between the Arthurs Pass and Haast Pass highways. Mostly they live at an altitude above 4500 feet and below 7000 feet. While there are plenty of places to find tahr on public land, research and preparation are a must when planning a trip. A high level of fitness is mandatory, as is the proper equipment to survive in an alpine environment.
